Face coverings

Based on current conditions, The Citadel will require face coverings to be worn while inside select campus buildings.

This protocol is temporary; based on the infection rates, The Citadel will keep all current protocols in place until the next reassessment.

This applies to all individuals – cadets, students, faculty, staff and visitors – regardless of vaccination status in the following locations:

  • All academic buildings and classrooms
  • Additional buildings that require masks are:
    • Mark Clark Hall
    • Summerall Chapel
    • Daniel Library
    • Infirmary
    • Counseling Center

Masks are not required outdoors, in barracks or in any facility not described above.

Supervisors are authorized to utilize discretion to require their employees to wear masks in close contact or indoor settings.


The Citadel recommends everyone on campus get vaccinated, and asks you to report your vaccination status via an e-form here or through Banner here.
